Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) on Tuesday refused to back down after becoming the first House Republican to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

CBS News campaign reporter Bo Erickson snapped a photo of Amash speaking to a group of students outside the U.S. Capitol.

According to Erickson, Amash told the children that impeachment is warranted because it’s “really dangerous for our country” when presidents lie.

Wow: @justinamash is NOT backing down. He is now talking to a school group on steps of the Capitol about why Trump impeachment proceedings should begin. “Really dangerous for our country” when ppl don’t tell the truth
